Janet Goldner
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work bridges diverse cultures, focusing on the unique beauty and genius of each as well as what we have in common. It explores culture, identity and social justice working in various media: sculpture, photography, video, installation and writing. Cultural preservation is important to my work. Annual visits to Mali provide me with inspiration which is then transformed in my artistic practice. My social consciousness and deep and continuing interest in African art and culture also fuel the work.
